British Thornton Launches New 'Design Hub'

In November, British Thornton opened their brand new design studio. Based at their Keighley site, the 'Hub for Innovation and Design' is another of the many steps that the company has taken to become the design-led manufacturer of the furniture for education market.

Not only does the studio have capacity for a potential 25% increase in design and space-planning staff, it stimulates a creative environment that the team can produce their best work in. Whether it’s discussing the latest projects in the meeting room, working at their desks or taking a break playing table-tennis, the new studio has been built following the latest working-space trends.

Gerard Toplass, CEO and Jonathan Clark, Product Design Director, were at the opening to thank suppliers for their generous contributions and to outline how they hope the new studio will help the company over the coming years.
